Hya a few weeks ago I bought some Genesis hair accidentally.
I also downloaded Genesis Crowns recently thinking I could use them in Carrarar 8.1 (ie not the beta) by
extracting the object files.
In the crown download the closest thing I can see to the correct size for the obj file is a DSF file
So I tried renaming it to an Obj file then importing it into Carrara - but no go.
I get nothing.

Any clues as to how to use these things apart from installing Studio or installing the Carrara beta?

I guess I should just model the crowns myself - but the hair is a different story.

Thanks in advance.

Have a look at the DSF toolbox, currently on sale for 50% off.  It can convert DSF files to OBJ without needing DS4.

There is a PDF manual for it as well.  See image below.
